The veteran drama will continue in 2020.
January 22, 2019
Syfy announced today that The Magicians has been renewed for a fifth season. The good news comes on the eve of the fantasy's drama's Season 4 premiere, which kicks off tomorrow at 9:00pm picking up from last spring, with the heroes unsure of who they are and being sought by the monster.
Adapted from the Lev Grossman novel trilogy of the same name, The Magicians follows a graduate student who enrolls at a magical college only to discover that the fantasy world from popular children's books is actually based in truth and poses a danger to his world.
Today's early pickup ensures there is plenty more of The Magicians for fans to look forward to. Season 4's 13-episodes will run through to spring, while Season 5 will likely return in early 2020 with another expected, though not confirmed, 13 episodes.

well... this seasons ending was very well written. the use of psychological "tearjerking" was super mean. those writers should be ashamed of themselfs... making people suffer sadness. normaly they seem to try to get u to dislike those (actually quite evil) characters. kudos! i effing hate this show. can't wait for season 5. let's hope it sucks really hard!

This show fascinated me from day 1. Each season fascinated me to a new level of curiosity. The characters were oddball yet endearing. The stories so different from anything else I watched. I can NOT wait until season 5 to see where the writers take us.

The first season was lame and I can't imagine how it got a 2nd season. But I'm glad they gave it a chance. It continues to get better and is now very very enjoyable. The cast is now awesome but in season one they weren't even likable. The show is a lot of fun. The cast singing Bowie was one of the best scenes ever in a TV show!

I bailed out on this show season 1. When Quentin and Alice had to turn into wolves and have sex as wolves to save he world, I was out. Ridiculous plot line and clearly saved me 4 more season of stupidity like that.
